Lecturer: Laurent Borgmann (with Guest Lecturers from Giorgia)
Mondays 11:45 - 13:15 in B 014

On the course "International Studies II" of the "Asia-Module" students will get an insight into ideas and perspectives which they are likely to meet when they enter the Asian market. As we are lucky to have guest lecturers from Georgia this semester, first half semester: Tamar Kbiladze; second half semester: Ucha Gogritchiani the examples chosen for cross-cultural comparisons will often be chosen from Giorgia but also from India and from Bhutan.  Students are trained to perceive cultural differences and act accordingly. The intercultural competence gained is both "culture-specific" (e.g. students will practice culture-specific "crash investigations" into some Asian countries and contrast their findings to European countries but also  "culture-general" as the differences will reveal "clusters" of typical and plannable bahaviour.  Students will gain theoretical insights into Asian working styles, different perceptions of time, different religions, and different education styles which will then be applied in exercises and in concrete simulations involving active interaction in the classroom if possible with participants from several different cultures. The insights into Asian cultures and perspectives will help students assess their own cultural backgrounds and give them guidance how to do business in Asia.


Time of the course - Mondays 16:00-17:30 

This course builds on English language skills developed in the earlier studies, with a focus on the development of strategies for ongoing independent learning.

Lecturer: Tamar Kbiladze 

Time of the course - Thursdays 16:00-19:15, last class 17 November

The aim is to engage students with the growing number of issues and phenomena which have arisen under the conditions of globalization. On the basis of current research papers, academic discourse and case studies, students will gain insight in the challenges faced by multinational as well as small and medium-sized businesses. The course will improve students’ awareness of the social and individual impact of global changes. It facilitates the development of international key competencies such as IT skills, presentation skills, active citizenship and team work ability. Students will carry out, present and document their own international project.
Business with Asian markets is no longer a phenomenon reserved to the big multinationals. Small and medium-sized companies and institutions need to reach out to Asia in order to remain competitive in their regional networks. In this course students will gain insights into processes of social and economic global transformation on different levels in Asia: the individual and family level, the company level as well as political and societal levels. 

This course is an intensive seminar that will take place on campus between the 25th and the 27th of November

This seminar allows students and colleagues to put into practice their intercultural knowledge with students and lecturers from different cultures, nationalities, and countries and to continue this practice in their everyday lives. Students and lecturers acquire the ability to find cooperative and friendly responses to intercultural challenges. This seminar assists in improving participants’ empathy, tolerance, cultural intelligence, and accounts for significant personal change. By promoting cultural awareness in education, students are able to understand and improve their problem-solving skills, work productivity, and acquire better cross-culture understanding.

Theoretical insights into different working styles, different perceptions of time, different religions, and different education styles are applied in exercises and in concrete simulations involving active interaction if possible with participants from several other cultures.
